A Guide to Setting Up Food at Outdoor Wedding Venues, Richmond, Kentucky

Organizing and setting up food tables is one of the most important aspects of choosing an outdoor wedding venue for your big day. No matter the number of guests, it’s important to make food arrangements that will be well-loved by everyone in attendance. Read on for some important insights into the planning that goes into efficient wedding catering.

4 Tips to Make Food Arrangements for Outdoor Wedding Venues

Outline Your Budget

Before calling up a wedding catering service, it’s important to streamline your budget and determine the amount you’ll be comfortable spending. Caterers usually have a variety of packages to offer so you can pick one that best meets your budgetary criteria. 

Consider the Number of Guests

Wedding VenueAn intimate wedding with a smaller number of guests can easily be organized with fewer dishes and course meals. However, a larger guest list often warrants making ample food arrangements to make sure everyone is fully catered to. In general, caterers recommend burgers, barbecue, and other picnic foods for smaller events, while a bigger wedding party is better served with a buffet menu.

Choose Weather-Appropriate Foods

Organizing your wedding at an outdoor venue also warrants taking the weather into account when making decoration and food choices. Fresh fruit, drinks, and appetizers make for a perfect way to begin proceedings at an outdoor summer wedding. Fall weddings can easily pull off richer and warmer food choices, such as stewed beef and chicken carbonara.

Set Up a Separate Drinks Bar

An outdoor venue also offers sufficient open space to set up a separate drinks bar and keep the proceedings efficiently organized. Consult the wedding catering service about the variety of drinks they have to offer. You can also take their advice about the type of drinks that pair well with the foods you’ve selected.
